Default Suffering Hypertension, cheat?, pls advise

Dear all,

I am going to send the application for PR within australia.

However I found out that I may have hypertension recently. That could be the only reason for me to fail my application.

I would like to ask for any advices that can help my situation....

I am worrying about this for 3 mths, and up until now I still haven't done the medical check, and this is theo nly thing left.

I would like to ask, if i start medication to control my BP and go for medical check without telling them I am on medication for HBP, would they be able to chekc it out through my blood test? I know I shouldn't do it as it is cheating... but...

WHat would be the best way to overcome this/

thanks for your advices

No they will not know from your blood test. I don't think hypertension will cause you to be rejected, it's a very common and easily controlled problem.

You have absolutely NO worries there, I can assure you.

My wife suffers the same and she told the doc doing the medical, he said nothing to worry about!.

Good luck!.

First, not owning up to an existing medical condition will if found out almost certainly cause you more problems..

Second, do a search through the forum for 'blood pressure' or 'hypertension' you'll find plenty of messages from people in a similar situation who haven't found it to be major obstacle at all.

Finally and most importantly, don't hang delay getting the treatment, I don't know how high your BP is but everything else becomes rather irrelevant if you end up getting serious problems from untreated hypertension.

Cheers

Having Hypertension in isolation of heart disease etc. will be unlikely to
cause you to fail a medical. You need to inform them that you are taking
medication for this, for how long & what medication it is. You will probably
have to get a cardiology report which will show if this has been a long-term
uncontrolled problem or not. It's a good idea to speak to the panel doctor
before you have your medical and suggest this so that you can bring the
report to the medical otherwise you will have 2 trips to the doctor - 2 sets
of fees unless he/she is very kind.

Don't worry about it - it'll only exacerbate the hypertension.

Good luck.
